There’s already an Accentuate.us extension that automatically adds diacritics to text as you type. But users may find that approach too aggressive or (depending on writing style and content) not quite accurate enough. AVIM could optionally integrate with Accentuate.us to provide suggestions for diacritics to insert, similar to what Google Input Tools does for Vietnamese.

Cờ Rôm+ Cốc Cốc also has an auto-accent feature for the entire browser, including the search bar. AVIM needs to support something in this vein (or promote the Accentuate.us extension), because it’s quickly becoming a user expectation.

Connecting to the API looks like a piece of cake, but the service isn’t working for Vietnamese at the moment. (It is working for other languages.) The main challenge is to find an unobtrusive yet efficient UI for this feature.

Another possibility would be to hook into the same API used by Google Input Tools, as described in this Stack Overflow thread. AVIM makes a big deal about being secure and private, so this feature would have to be strictly opt-in only.
